Even though many of you are stuck inside for the winter with all of the winter storms going around from coast to coast, some can’t possibly imagine that the spring will be here soon. With the groundhog missing his shadow this year that means spring time will be coming soon. This will give us the chance to spend more times in our gardens and in our yards again. This is the best time of the year because spring hasn’t started yet and many stores will be doing whatever they can to sell off any old inventory that they have. They don’t have the benefit of the shopping holidays like cyber Monday and black Friday when the deals are easy to find. They want to free up space on their shelves so that they can get in the newest and the best of the next year. You may be able to find a good deal on things like gardening tools and a rooster metal planter or other décor for your yard. Thank you for stopping by the blog. In this edition we will be going over and previewing ways to find deals on yard décor and gardening sites. We hope that you find what you are looking for and will write in with any questions that you might have.
If you haven’t tried to shop right before the spring then you will be surprised when you are able to find some good deals coming up. Try searching Google for yard décor or gardening supplies and the top companies and stores will come up. One of the great ways to save money is to go to the sites of the stores that come up and check their websites to see if they offer a newsletter. You should also look for any coupons or promotions that they have on their sites. This way you will know as soon as there are any sales and if any items will be for sale and when. You can also go to the sites of companies that you respect and they will send an email to let you know when they have out the newest. This is a way to stay up to date with the newest gardening gear that’s coming out.
Thanks for stopping by and please stop back by again soon to check for new blogs. We update them on a regular basis.
With the winds whipping outside and the cold settling in with its icy grip, we are indoors more now than we usually are in the spring or the summer. That means spending more time with all of our belongings and being inside much more often. That means paying more attention to that old home decor that you have. Every now and then people want to change up their home décor and go in a different direction. That’s why it’s important to keep an open mind when it comes to interior design. Having options is very important and being able to find the best deal should also be important to you. Thank you for stopping by and for reading the blog. In this edition we will go over some home décor items that you might not have thought of and give you some options for interior design. Ideally you will come away with some ideas you might not have had before and more information.
Home décor is the centerpiece of your home design. Depending on what you are designing and what themes you want to use, it should be easy to find new décor options for your home. Have you considered watercolor paintings? You can match your surroundings by finding local artists that paint and you can not only support a local artist but you can really make your design pop. If you live near the beach or a farm and have a painting featuring something from the area, this could really look great. Imagine living next to the beach with a painting of the beach on your wall with an eagle soaring above the water. Little things like that can truly help. Does your neighborhood feature a lot of white picket fences or have a lot of green grass? Depending on where you live, you can add little bits of spice like that to really move your interior design forward. Combining different elements from the outdoors can really add a jolt of color and personality.
Thank you for stopping by the blog. We hope that you found some good ideas or something that you can use. We hope that you will send us a picture of anything creative that you come up with and send us an email too. We love to hear from our clients and readers. Check back soon for new blogs, we post them regularly.
When the weather is dark and cold, in the dead of winter, there is nothing better than cuddling with your sweetheart on the couch. Whether you’re sipping wine or hot chocolate, reading quietly or watching your favorite show together, spending that time under the blankets while the snow falls and the wind blows is the epitome of comfort and relaxation. But as the weather changes, you might find yourself itching to get outside. Warm weather draws us outside to enjoy the sunshine and the birdsong, and there is no reason that you shouldn’t answer that call. Get out into your yard, where you can set up a hammock to rock on while you enjoy your lemonade and your favorite tunes. When you find yourself missing that one on one time with your partner, there is always time to look into the outdoor furniture that will give you back your quiet afternoons. We recommend a bistro patio set to really take advantage of those summer months.
What are you looking for in a great patio bistro set? The style is completely up to you, and the sky is the limit! Enjoy shopping the huge variety of materials to find the one that best fits with the aesthetic that you are setting up in your back yard, whether you are looking for natural wood, painted wood, rattan, aluminum or plastic. You will find designs that look classically French and incredibly relaxing, including decorative, white washed cast metal options, or you can go more natural with wooden and rattan options that might fit in nicely in a more tropical setting. You can even get a glass, high-top bistro table with tall matching chairs. A bistro set is the perfect table for two but can also easily accommodate a few more chairs when friends and family stop by to enjoy your beautiful yard.
When you’re shopping for patio furniture, the most important feature is durability. Any set that you are considering should be made from materials that are designed to go outside; simply moving an indoor set into the outdoors is not going to cut it. Your patio set should be weather proofed and ready for any kind of weather changes that the summer can throw at it. Beyond weatherproofing, you can also look for furniture that is adjustable, like reclining bistro chairs. Enjoy outdoor time with your loved ones!
Home design can be tough for many reasons. The seasons change and your décor has to change with them. Then you have the sub-seasons like Labor Day time and thanksgiving, the 4th of July. It can be truly difficult to stay up with them all. It can also be difficult to spruce up a room or outdoor area in between things. Sometimes you just need a little spark, or a flame is more like it. Why not consider a candle lantern? They are really easy to set up and use and come in all kinds of different designs. Welcome and thanks for coming by the blog. In this edition we will preview a handful of candle lanterns and how they might look in different areas and see if they are something that you would like to add to your collection or list of home décor items that you rotate. You might find that you leave them out, especially if you get a neutral color or solid color because they can bring so much life to an area. They are also an economical way to bring some flame and light to a patio or deck and even breezeway.
The first lantern we look at is from the Kate Aspen collection and it is a tea-light candle in an antiqued and distressed teal. These are great decoration for nearly any area and can fit easily with many schemes. They work great as a hanging light or as a lamp and give that rustic flair that so many love. Sets of 6 go for around $20 and are really versatile with how they fit in. If those aren’t for you, maybe you are looking for a more worldly and exotic look. You should consider a Moroccan style lantern. The Vela Lanterns units come in several vibrant colors and even red white and blue. They are fine for hanging or using as a free standing lamp. They are durably made of iron and glass and have 6” high panels with a wide opening for ease of use and placing and removing a candle.
Thank you for coming by and talking candles with us. We hope that you got an idea from this or got some information that you can use or apply. If you have a really fun area outside that you’d like to show off, please take a picture and send it in with your story and we might be able to us it in a future blog.

Warm and rich, all of these candle wall sconces will compliment and not take away from your current scheme and offer something nice to see as a light source inside or outside of your home. The first wall sconce we preview is the Deco Mirror wall sconce from Lark manor. This distressed and antiqued wall scone with a backing mirror will bring depth and a bit of character to your home. Coming in a set of two, these cream colored sconces add a nice bit of subtlety to any home and are suitable inside or outside the home.
The next wall sconces that we look at are European tall metal wall sconces from Ophelia and Co. This are made for the outside and when placed on a wall, they immediately gain a little understated appeal or a European feel. These make an ideal gift for a friend that’s moving into a new home or to keep for your own outdoor patio area. These are easy to install and take down and will compliment your exterior area wonderfully. The next sconces we preview are the Leaf mirrored wall sconces from Alcott Hill shop. These are also artificially distressed and show a unique texture that will be exclusive to your home. This black metal will appeal to your sense of mystery as it is hard to tell what it is made of. The mirror catches and redirects the light outwards, giving an added degree of warmth and depth to your home. These are an ideal house warming gift and make a strong statement, that is certain. The final sconce we look at is an Iron Sconce wall combo that is elegant and free, just like you. No mirror is needed as these don’t need the extra attention, only serving to compliment the warm candle without. These are a nice compliment outside of a bedroom or within a den as they are very mild and don’t draw much attention.

It takes a lot of hard work to create a pleasant garden. You have to arrange water features, walkways, seating, shade, planters, and plants. However, lately, there has been a rising trend of using garden statues. More and more homeowners are singling out garden statues as the missing spark in their green spaces. You should not just buy out any garden statues; you have to be patient and consider several factors before you shop for them. If you are confused about where to put the garden statues, you can think of them as same as the furniture in your garden. Think on the lines of your garden’s theme. For example, if you have a flower garden, you can complement it well with a relevant statue. Don’t mix your themes. Doing so can produce an awkward and messy look. Also, get something that you genuinely like. Rather than purchasing a design in mere impulse, consider a statue that resonates well with your preferences.
The placement of your statue is crucial and relies on several factors. The type of statue considerably impacts the outlook of the garden. Abstract statues are well-liked centerpieces due to their ability to appear impressive from all viewpoints and angles. You can select an abstract statue – one that generates an emotional response. However, make sure that you have an opinion of your friends and family before purchasing an abstract statue. This is because they can be subjective and may evoke an unintended emotional response from others.
Go for smaller garden statues if you want to incorporate an intimate aura to your garden. Conversely, larger ones appear as focal points, even in large gardens. Therefore, choose them if you want your statues to stand out. You can also use multiple small statues as focal points. To work out the size of your statues, you can use a wood box or cardboard. Get them in the size of garden statues and see how they play out in your garden. In this way, you can have a fairly strong idea regarding the proportions of your statues. Decor-wise, it is generally common practice to put down statues in sitting areas. This is a smart way to set the mood for a friendly chat. Some homeowners place flowers around garden statues to create a distinct, beautiful visual sight.

Some of the sleeves are available in dazzling colors; you can work them out for a shelf to create a multicolored effect. Similarly, use them with a console to display your favorite music. When done rightly, record players can add certain artistic expressions in home decor. Do you know that you can use books for other purposes other than reading? You can arrange them in a wide range of styles, so they appear beautiful. They can be displayed opened on a shelf, utilized for height combinations, and stacked on their sides. You can also use an old and tiny photo frame with an opened book for generating interest. Similarly, stack four books and use a pretty ribbon to tie them, so they can stand out as an elegant centerpiece. To sum up, placing the right home collectibles in your home can turn out to be a terrific decision.

One of the most popular trends in the past few years in the U.S. is an increased interest in alternative medicine. This is why a lot of people have looked into tai chi, yoga, acupuncture, and healing crystals. You can find many individuals with crystalline sculptures. These sculptures are made of gorgeous, high-quality stones. Crystals are not only known for their versatility, but they can also help in healing one’s mind, body, and soul. They invoke a flow of positive energy and take out negative energies out of your system. The healing properties of crystals have been under extensive research for the past several years.
Historically, crystals held a strong reputation as an ancient type of medicine. The healing impact of crystals is thoroughly discussed in the philosophies of Buddhism and Hinduism. Even if someone does not believe in the healing abilities of crystals, they will still buy them thanks to the rock’s beauty and color. Often, crystalline sculptures are gifted to friends and relatives. If you are going on a shopping spree for crystalline sculptures, you must know how crystals are different from each other.
For example, clear quartz is touted as a “master healer.” Crystal experts believe that it absorbs, releases, and regulates energy. In this way, crystals amplify energy. Similarly, they are said to assist with stimulating the immune system, and they can balance your body. Usually, crystals are used in tandem with rose quartz to produce the best results. Rose quartz is a pink-colored stone. It restores harmony and trust in various types of relationships, thus fostering healthy and trustable alliances. Similarly, it is claimed that rose quartz eases up the suffering of those who are reeling from grief. Jasper is another famous crystal. It is referred to as the “supreme nurturer.” Jasper is useful in providing comfort during stressful times, where it builds up your courage. Crystal enthusiasts believe that it shields you from negative influences and vibes, while at the same time, it incorporates confidence, quick thinking, and courage.

If you have not placed plants in your home yet, you are perhaps unaware of the many advantages they can bring to the table. During the day, they release oxygen and create a healthy indoor environment. In winters, they add moisture in the dry surroundings, making your home comfortable. Nothing brightens and beautifies a room as elegantly as some greenery on a triple plant stand. In case you fear they you can’t look after them at all times, then you can go for those plants that require low maintenance. Consider indoor gardening in your home as an extension of outdoor gardening. When outdoor gardening becomes difficult during the winter season, tending to indoor plants is a good way to stay active.
If you have indoor and outdoor plants, buying a plant stand can be a smart move. They are created to carry multiple plant pots and keep them from falling on the floor or ground. These stands are available in beautiful and dazzling designs, and you can leverage them to add a positive aura in your small room. They incorporate a natural, cozy sense of air in any area in which they are placed. Some homeowners position them at their front door – a smart way to welcome and greet guests. In case you feel as if a certain area in your home looks too boring or dull, adding a triple plant stand into the mix can brighten up the mood. Plant stands are ideal for families who live in a condominium or apartment. If you have yard spaces, deck, or a small balcony, you can use plant stands to help with a contemporary décor design. Moreover, it makes up for a productive way to water plants.
Select those stands that complement your existing décor. In this way, you can display different types of plants on breathtaking pedestals. Stands are designed from various materials such as wicker, metal, and finished wood. Some come with minimalistic design, while others are heavily styled. Depending on your indoor space and plants, you have to pick the right size and shape of the stand. For instance, some stands are compact enough to accommodate a tiny Aloe Vera plant, while others are large enough to carry a tall jade tree. The most critical factor is to make sure that your plant stand matches the type of your plant.
